Two recent studies published in the Obstetrics & Gynecology and JAMA Oncology further established the possibility that many women who underwent gynecological procedures with power morcellation were put at risk for the spread of undetected cancer tissues, The Wall Street Journal reported on February 19.
In a study published inObstetrics & Gynecology, researchers from the University of Michigan said the possibility of having undetected sarcoma among women who had hysterectomies was one in 368. On the other hand, a study published in the JAMA Oncology stated that although the possibility of hidden cancers are low among those who have their uterine fibroids removed with or without a power morcellator, the risk of cancers hidden in benign growths increases with age.
These two studies further prove that the possibility of spreading hidden sarcoma during a laparoscopic procedure involving a power morcellator is high.
